I don't know if you are familiar with the Gower and Port Eynon, but it is very much a charming fishing village and as such consists of pretty cottages developed in a random higgledy piggledy fashion. There is nothing like the stunning view over the village with the sea stretching to the horizon as you begin your descent down into the village via the winding road. Port Eynon is the most southerly point of the Gower and the public road ends there. There is no through traffic. The beach is backed by sand dunes and you can walk along to the East to Horton, another charming village. In addition to the restaurant and the pub, there are fish restaurants, a surf shop, and general stores for provisions.
